Pork Se’i is Kupang’s (a region in Indonesia) typical food. What makes se’i special is the pork is cooked not using direct fire but using smokes. There are two kind of Se’i, the one using pork or the one using beef. It is quite hard to find a nice place that serves delicious Se’i. But now, we will share our story when we found this wonderful restaurant.
Warung Ce! is a restaurant specialized in Se’i. They are located in Sixth Avenue, Citra 6, between Bean It Coffee and Indomaret. Their signage is not that big but you can spot them quite easily as they hang up this big banner on their little restaurant.
We had been here 3 times, and this time we decided to share our experience eating here to all of you. We thought it will be a pity if we don’t share this amazingly delicious restaurant.
Their place isn’t that big and spacious, but it is comfortable to sit there for a couple of hours. The room can hold until 40 people. If you want to try their foods, try to come not during lunch or dinner time as you will need to queue. The interior is simple. Nothing really special from their interior. When you walk into their restaurant, you will see their counter and 2 chalk-board which tell us about their promo and several menus.
More photos later and now let’s talk about their dishes. Warung Ce! sells pork se’i in many way. They served it as se’i fried rice, se’i hot plate, and many more. They also sell fried pork which we try that day.
Pork Se’i, 35k
We really love their se’i. It is juicy, and tender. Very succulent! It also has that smoke-y taste but not as strong as the one we get from Kupang. They served it with their stir fried cassava leaves and papaya flower, which is very-very delicious. You can pair it with their se’i or other dishes. FYI, you can order an additional stir fried cassava leaves and papaya flower for 7k. Their pork Se’i is a must-must try if you visit them.
Fried Pork, 35k
We can’t believe that fried pork could taste this great. The pork itself was tender and delicious. Even the fried-minced garlic taste wonderful! Yeah, it sounds so exaggerated but- trust us. It taste brilliantly delicious. Try it yourself and prove us right 😉
Pork Skewer, 30k
Actually their pork skewer’s sauce was too sweet for our liking. The pork itself was great, tender and juicy. But the sauce need some improvement. It is better to eat their skewer after you finish other dishes as it will make you feel full due to its sweetness.
Grass Jelly Drink, 10k
We don’t usually give review for drinks, but this one is an exception. Their grass jelly was the best grass jelly we’d ever had! Their grass jelly isn’t water-like. It has that konyaku-agar agar texture.
Overall, we had another great food experience. Great place, and great foods 🙂 However, their service isn’t really fast. Need a little improvement, maybe? Now, what are you waiting for? Let’s eat, foodies!
